Rear Wheel Removal Tool Question

Has anyone used a 55mm socket made for Duc 1098 on a F4/Brutale rear wheel removal? How well does the socket fit the MV wheel nut? I'm inquiring because I'm considering whether to take my Brutale for tire change at local Ducati dealer and whether I should buy an MV-specific socket for the Duc dealer to use to change the tire. Thanks in advance!

Ha-ha.. I took my F4 to an MV dealership and they still managed to mangle the rear wheel nut!

You can but the tool everywhere. They are always for sale on ebay. I recommend you just buy one and do it your self. If you do, remember the nut is on VERY tight and it is REVERSE thread.

There are a few sellers out there and I'm interested in getting this one but am not sure whether it'll fit the Brutale's nut: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...179191276&rd=1

I would prefer to take the wheels off myself but since I don't have a front stand I would still have to bring the bike in to change the front so I figured might as well just have them do both.

You will need a mate to sit on the bike to stop her toppling over ... yes the nut is that tight.

Thanks, Mate! I'll definitely keep that in mind if I end up taking the wheel off myself.

I have had the rear wheel off my bike probably 5 or 6 times and never had anyone help, or sit on the bike. I usually put it in gear so the rear wheel does not turn, then lock the front wheel by wrapping a bungee cord around the brake lever so the bike can't roll. Then just use a long breaker bar and apply lots of slow, steady pressure until it comes loose.

Emoto has them but they are pricey. I think shiftech has them.

Cannot find it on Shiftech's web site. Maybe they discontinued it?

The older I get the worse my memory gets. The emoto one is aluminum I think. The one I have is steel. I thought I got it from shiftech, maybe not.
